2015 Off-season thread in Detroit Tigers Posted January 20, 2016 This is their team for the next two years. If they fail this year, they go for it again next year. If they fail next year, then it's time to re-build with lots of money coming off the books in 17 and 18.I love how this team has sort of been retooling on the fly for almost a decade now. The team has been called old since like 2007. Now, it's a whole new cast of characters, minus Verlander, and people still act like it's the same team.Eventually they'll have to give up the ghost. But they've done a great job of keeping things rolling and not becoming the Phillies.
